Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Gibbon, who is leading the investigation into the murder of businessman, David Twigg, has released further information about the circumstances of Mr Twigg’s death.
Mr Twigg is believed to have died as a result of smoke inhalation at his joinery business premises in Station Yard, Burgh Le Marsh, on Sunday 13 March.
Det Ch Insp Gibbon said, “Detailed forensic analysis of the building has taken place since the 13 March and I can confirm that David Twigg was locked inside a cupboard within the workshop during the fire. There was no key in the lock when the emergency services forced the cupboard door to reach Mr Twigg”.
DCI Gibbon is also making a further appeal for information about people who may have been in the vicinity of the workshop on Saturday 12 or the morning of Sunday 13 March. A public footpath runs close by the property and walkers have been known to inadvertently cross land owned by Mr Twigg. Police would particularly like to speak to a man and a woman who may have been walking in this area on the Saturday or two men who were challenged about their route on the Sunday morning. If you were one of these people or you saw them or know who they may be, please contact Lincolnshire Police on 0300 111 0300 quoting the operation name, Operation Roundup.
